cooperation. robert mueller and his team's m.o. is to keep quiet and keep things under wraps, don't talk to the media. >> they have to do something to show what they are coming up with. >> the mueller office will be up and running well into 2018, if not through the whole year. good morning, thank you for joining us. i'm rene marsh in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. our top story, the crittal investment in the russia investigation. we are learning that special counsel robert mueller has filed the first charges in the russian meddling in the 2016 election and probable collusion with the trump campaign and the sources telling cnn and say that anyone charged in the investigation could be taken into custody as early as monday. >> it is a landmark moment in the investigation into russian meddling in the 2016 election.
sources briefed on the matter say a federal grand jury in washington approved the first charges in the investigation led by special counsel robert mueller. a spokesperson declined to comment. the indictments are sealed but plans are under way for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as monday. >> when you see a sealed indictment, it almost always happens for one reason, there is a fear the defendant will flee the jurisdiction. >> mueller wants to send a signal to other perspective defendants, if there person who has been indicted or persons are facing 20 to 40 to 50 years for whatever these crimes are, e related to collusion or not, there are others who may be subject to similar charges who have further knowledge about dealings with russia. >> the special counsel investigation focused on potential collusion between the trump campaign and russia, as well as obstruction of justice by the president who might have tried to impede the investigation. cnn reported that investigators
are scrutinizing the president and his associates financial ties to russia. >> this is what we've been waiting for, to see if investigators will bring charges in this probe that even impacts the president to a degree because investigators have been looking at his potential involvement in obstruction of justice, you see him tweeting about it, calling it a witch hunt, a hoax, saying that it is a waste of tax dollars. >> reporter: the team is examining foreign lobbying conducted by trump campaign manager paul manafort, former national security adviser michael flynn and others. special counsel issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to a handful of figures including some people close to manafort and others involved in the trump tower meeting between russias and campaign officials. >> and this may be an indication that he's not trying to show his hand, because he doesn't want people to be able to either conceal evidence, destroy evidence, it may be the reason that he was able to do a surprise no-knock and announce
warrant on paul manafort's home there is an urgency that robert mueller is seeing and it might be a flight risk or because there are missing pieces. >> well cnn washington correspondent ryan noble joins us now. from the very beginning, the tactic from the white house and the president has been deniy, deny, deny has it relates to the russia investigation and now we are hearing first charges are being filed, what is the white house saying now. >> at this point no official response from the white house but saturday mornings are busy for president trump on twitter so we are monitoring his feed so see if he will give his opinion on this new development. and it would be a surprise if the president continued his efforts to raise doubt and questions about the value of mueller and his team's work. yesterday, just yesterday, the president tweeted, quote, it is now commonly agreed after many months of costly looking that there was no collusion between russia and trump. was collusion with h.c.
he is talking about hillary clinton. that was before we knew that the special counsels would poised to file charges and sara sanders also arguing yesterday that the multiple investigations looking into the president's ties to russia are just not worth the taxpayer expense. >> congress has spent a great deal of time on this. a better part of a year. all of your news organizations have spent probably a lost money on this as well which we would consider a pretty big waste. i think that our position hasn't changed since day one and i think we are seeing now that if there was any collusion with russia it was between the dnc and the clintons and special not our campaign. >> now there have been some republicans that have been arguing for a while that the special counsel investigation is costing taxpayers too much. but there isn't much that white house or the congress can do to cut off funding to the mueller investigation without taking some pretty dramatic legislative steps. there does not appear to be the political will to push that through at this point.
so now that we're on the verge of the first arrests taking place, possibly as soon as monday, this tactic could be more about winning the battle over public opinion, something the president clearly believes he can win and as of right now still hasn'ts weighed in on twitter but we'll continue to monitor that feed. >> we'll keep watching. ryan nobles live from washington. and joining me to discuss, eugene scott and amber phillips from the washington post and legal analyst and attorney also we have with us mark lamont hill, political commentator and temple university professor. good morning, all. and let me start with you, page, pamela brown reported last night that the person or persons who were going to face charges as early as monday have not been notified or their attorneys have not been notified according to the cnn reporting. but considering they get target letters, do you expect they know this is coming? >> absolutely. i think we've heard earlier that
paul manafort's lawyer specifically have been told they should expect an indictment. now the manafort case has been going on for a long time and i think this particular indictment sh the first indictment is likely to focus on paul manafort. that investigation predates the special counsel, bob mueller took it over and incorporated it into his investigation and his lawyers have been had discussions with the special counsel office, either about cooperating, about the substance of the charges but this should not be a surprise if it is paul manafort or michael flynn. >> eugene, to the point of potentially this being paul manafort and again there is no confirmation who is facing charges, if it is one person or more than one but the president said earlier if this investigation goo goes into the financial dealing of himself and his family and businesses, that would be crossing a red line for bob muellerme and we know the focus is on money laundering and other white-collar crimes and that does that mean for the
white house. >> i think that is crossing the line for trump. i think people outside of the white house know if this investigation already has gone into the financial relationships between the trump campaign and russia, that would include the president himself. i think what this does reveal is the ramifications of perhaps not being as transparent with the american people as early as possible about your taxes and other related finances that could have proven that you are -- your hands are clean in a way that he is hoping this investigation doesn't move into in terms of its direction. >> the president saying through the campaign, he said he was under routine audit and then after getting into the white house his staff saying he would not release his taxes. the american people paraphrasing here, eelected him any way. and amber to you, and if this is -- and again we'll get this answer as soon as monday, if this is related to money laundering or some financial crimes, and does not go directly
to collusion, will the white house see that as some point of relief after months and months of saying there was no evidence of collusion. >> yeah. i think absolutely and i think it is not evident that it will be released to them. the white house as we've seen the president has taken every opportunity to -- according to his words from james comey, get out from under the cloud, that is the russia investigation. and he will seize on opportunities to do that even in ways that you could be argued are jumping to conclusions about things. that being said, yes, if this is -- an ex trumper being indicted, it is related to their personal financial crimes, i don't think you could call it case closed at all because legal experts say it is pretty clear that mueller's team is following a -- like white-collar investigation, 101 tactic, to try to get the smaller fish, pressure them with crimes and criminal charges and then even threats of jail to get them to talk about the bigger fishes.
>> i want to come to you in just a moment but i want to get mark into the conversation and let's listen to white house press secretary sara sanders of what she said yesterday. >> the president wants to see this completed. we think that we are continuing to see day in and day out as this investigation moves to completion that as the same as it started, there is still no evidence of collusion between the president and anyone. if any collusion took place it is between the dnc and the clintons and i think we're starting to now see that all of the things that the democrats had accused this president of doing, they were actually guilty of themselves and i think that is a big problem that should be looked at. >> mark, what do you make of the timing as cnn teams were working on this and able to report it last night, just in last couple of days we've seep this huge ramp up from the president and the white house talking about hillary clinton and uranium one
and her e-mails. >> it is a wild could incidence. i clearly -- they have some indication that something was about to happen and for that reason they were doing what the trump team does best, which is redirect. which is deflect and what you began to see was an argument, if there is any potential collusion here, it is not between us and russia, it is between the dnc and russia, between the clinton campaign and russia. attempting to really develop some -- some sort of support for any potential charges, not necessarily against trump directly, but in anyone in one degree of separation away from trump. this might not be about collusion, it could be about financial crimes or stuff that precedes the russia investigation but that will make a tie to the trump administration and if they immediately ant want to deflect from and they ramp up around uranium and around hillary clinton e-mails and other things. which should be dead issues at this point. >> page -- let me get to the
question that amber brought up here. this delay here, what is happening in this delay, is there some strategy on behalf of prosecutors, why would a federal judge seal this until monday? explain what is happening over the next day or so. >> victor, that is entirely common. it happens in virtually every forward case. once an indictment is returned, it has to be provided to the federal district court and as a matter of course, as a matter of habit and routine, policy, procedure, the federal district judge seals the indictment until the defendants have been taken into custody and made their initial appearance before a magistrate judge. so i don't think it is any indication that the government is necessarily concerned that whoever is charged or however people are charged they will flee the jurisdiction or cause danger or harm to a witness. it is just procedure. it is common. even if the defendant and his or her lawyer have been notified they will have to come to court on monday, it is still going to be under seal until they first
appear in front of a judge. >> page, eugene, amber and mark and we're going to add to the conversation and we'll continue that in a moment. and coming up later in hour, the fbi to -- trying to track down strippers and cuban agents, bragging about knowing lee harvey oswald. we'll show you the latest on what we're learning from the thousands of declassified files on the assassination of jfk. that is coming up. still could come, a failed engine -- a broken mast and drifting aimlessly in the pacific ocean, the nightmare of two american women who were rescued at sea after being stranded for five months. their incredible journey coming up.

senior adviser to the trump campaign. i want you to start this block since you just joined the conversation. the trump campaign and the trump administration has said there is no evidence of collusion and have criticized quite openly on twitter and other places robert mueller and his team and now they have reached the first charges filed and going to the grand jury, thinking there is now probable cause that a crime has been committed, what is your reaction? we haven't heard from the president or the white house. >> i don't believe there is any collusion or they will find any evidence of collusion. we have to idea on an investigation this wide, where they are going and what they are going to get somebody for. for example, if a campaign workers had some shady dealings of any nature, it could be on the table app and it could be the kind of thing an investigation like this stumbles across. so we just don't really know. i'm confident that they are not going to find any collusion. i do want to get back to the
timing of this. i think it is part of a chess game because there is a lot of talk in washington right now about james comey and his memo that exonerated hillary clinton before the investigation was even complete. there is discussion about uranium one and the $2.3 million that the president of the company gave to the clinton foundation and there is discussion about debbie water man schultz and john podesta denying who paid for the dossier and that is coming out and congress is looking into it and then suddenly mueller makes this move, could be part of a chess game, could just be the coincidence of timing in washington, d.c. >> now mark, let me come back to you. because we heard the list there where it seems like there are two realities while this is happening, there is another network that doesn't talk at any length about the major developments coming out over the
last few hours. there are many people going on that line. what do you make of the split reality for a lack of a better term. >> it is fascinating. it is a political war chess. people want to see based on their political orientation but there are concrete facts and one fact that is there is going to be an indictment. there have been target letters issued prior to the indictment. so i disagree with jack. this isn't a random campaign work worker who may have had a staidy dealing and stumbled across and this is the first domino in many and this is a out liar and with regard to the clinton and the dnc, that is an important conversation that we need to have but somehow right wing media and the trump administration, which in in ways are the same thing, have somehow spun that in a moment where the democrats and clintons are under investigation, and not the president. and they framed the argument in
that way so that when trump is ultimately linked to a controversy, whether he is guilty or not, i'm not suggesting, but linked to whatever happens on monday when someone is charged and taken into custody, when that happens, they could say we're in the middle of a democratic investigation and suddenly they try to distract us with something that is only marginally linked to president trump. this is a chess game and it is being masterfully manipulated by the right but it is important we keep our eye on what is important and it is this investigation and these indictments. >> page, let me come to you, because i want you to pick up on something that the congressman said, that he still doesn't believe there is any evidence of collusion and no one will be charged. on monday, if that is when this is unsealed there will be no charge of, quote, unquote, collusion. >> that is correct. there will be no collusion in the indictment because collusion itself not a federal crime. so what will have to be in the indictment is some allegations that the defendant broke federal law, made some sort of commission of an offense under
forward law and collusion itself is not defined under there. so once this indictment is unsealed, the white house looks at it and they may say, lookk there is collusion in this indictment but there never could be. but other charges related to russian interference in the election, hacking charges, obstruction charges, perhaps false statement charges that occurred during the course of the investigation, all of that is possible but you are not going to see a collusion charge because it doesn't exist. >> eugene, one other element that i don't think is getting enough attention, that dana benty, he resigned surprisingly yesterday. people may remember that name. but he was briefly the acting attorney general also the acting deputy attorney general for a period. again that eastern district of virginia is important to this case. many of the subpoenas came through that district. any correlation, any connection here that you are learning about? >> i think that is very possible. in terms of details regarding
the reason why he stepped away from his position. those haven't been clear as of yet but that could be forthcoming just like so much information could be forthcoming. what we will see from the trump came -- campaign, they will continue to say there is no collusion but as has been mentioned before, this investigation is wide sweeping and just because there perhaps will not be a charge of collusion, that doesn't mean there won't be other revelations that were problematic involving multiple people as we see down to the state attorney general. >> and mark such -- touched about this, the president getting a heads up and the president tweeting, it is agreed after months of costly looking and no collusion between russia and trump, and collusion with h.c., that coming out yesterday. what is the likelihood that the white house got some heads up here. >> from my understanding of the way the special council works,
that would not be -- the way -- it would not happen where the white house got a heads up. if someone in their circle were being charged with a crime, especially if it were related to a broader investigation, of white house and president trump's campaign. i mean, from my understanding from legal experts is you do not launch a special investigation that has gone on for months an expanded to dozens of attorneys and a wide-ranging of prosecutorial skills and not try to folks very much on the top. so this notion in a the white house got a heads up doesn't -- doesn't underscore with what i understand the facts to be, which is that this investigation is trying to get to the bottom of a very serious issue related to the president of the united states. it would be extraordinary if they did get a head's up. >> the person and the charges will gleam light on the strategy
moving forward as we know this investigation likely is not over. amber phillips, eugene scott, jack will hill and mark kingston, thank you. and just ahead, what we're learning from the thousands of pages of jfk assassination files. two cuban intelligence officers are heard talking about lee harvey oswald, does it reveal anything about the assassination of jfk?
accused of obstructing justice to theat the fbinuclear war, and of violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer, and like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet today people in congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger who's mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility

welcome back. i'm rene marsh in for christi paul. >> and i'm victor blackwell. >> our top story, a major development in the russia investigation. special council robert mueller has filed the first charges in the investigation into russia's meddling in the 2016 election. and possible collusion with the trump campaign. mueller and investigators on
capitol hill are scrutinizing trump and his associates financial ties to russia. our justice correspondent pamela brown helped break the story and she has more on the new revelations. >> it takes a couple of days before the attorney of the client is even notified and then what would happen at that point is the attorney would be told that their client needs to turn him or herself in within a certain time frame and that is how this plays out which is why we're being told we could see a law enforcement activity related to the sealed indictments as early as perhaps monday or tuesday. robert mueller and his team's m.o. from the very beginning has been to keep quiet and things under wraps and doan talk to the media. >> well president trump as you know has repeatedly called the investigation a hoax and hours before the charges were aflounce sh d-- announced, he posted thi. this is commonly agreed after
many months of costly looking that there was no collusion between russia and trump. was collusion with h.c. >> well we're going to get to our panel now here to discuss, cnn correspondent cara skinnel, political km political comentator jack kingston and author of g gop gps, sig mond freed. >> and how significant is the latest investment about mueller filing the first charges. >> this is a major development. the special counsel investigation began in may so? just a short time period of five months, the team assemble by mueller has presented enough evidence to a grand jury they've decided there is enough to warrant criminal charges. what we don't flow -- know is t nature of the charges and the special counsel has been looking
into different elements, from collusion there the trump administration has denied and potential lobbying violations by former aides to the trump campaign. and other components. so we're seeing in a very short period of time initial charges in this case. and that is very significant at this point. >> jack, i want to go to you, the first charges filed in this investigation, mueller's investigation, the president has continuously called this a witch hunt. is it still a witch hunt in light of these new developments? >> i think that it is just a free reign, come look at everybody's books and audit anything you want and spend millions of dollars in taxpayer money on this phony allegation of collusion between the trump campaign and russia. i think if there is any evidence that we've seen lately, it is with the clinton campaign. the uranium one deal really smells. that is why the house is looking into it. the executive -- the president of the company given the clinton foundation $2.3 million right at
a time when they were getting their sale to russia approved. very fishy. 72,000 e-mails of hillary clinton that are just now being released, only -- only 30,000. 40,000 will be trickled out and the dossier where the -- or the director of the dnc, debbie wasserman schultz and then john podesta who ran the clinton campaign know nothing about it yet $9 million was spent. you have all of this on the table and then you have james comey who was in the thick of it when an fbi informant was saying, hey, this company ten x has bribery and shenanigans with russia. so to me there is a lot that could be investigated by this special prosecutors office and i hope they are looking at some of this stuff. >> well, jack, you just cued me for this conversation because what you are saying in line and echoes from the white house and the president all this week, they've been actually saying
don't look over here at russia, i want to you look at hillary clinton. take a listen to sara sanders in the press briefing room this week. >> the president wants to see this completed. we think that we are continuing to see day in and day out as this investigation moves to completion that as the same as it started, there is still no evidence of collusion between the president and anyone. if any collusion took place, it would be between the dnc and the clintons and think we are starting to now see that all of the things that the democrats had accused this president of doing, they were guilty of themselves and i think that is a rally big problem that should be certainly looked at. >> and aef aevan, i want to briu in the on the conversation. it clearly looks like a strategy in which -- in this week alone we've heard about clinton e-mails, we've heard about this dossier and clinton campaign funding it. we've also heard about this
russia uranium deal. is it an effective strategy? >> well, it is a strategy of basically like the o.j. simpson defense team saying there was another guy murdered across the street from nicole brown simpson. it doesn't matter. they investigating what is happening and they are purview so to deal with the trump campaign and they are raising all of the things that the white house has raised, which should be looked at by congress and if they find reason for a criminal investigation by the department of justice, then it should be investigated. but the -- but the shiny object of what about them is a nonsense strategy because we have to see where things go. from what we've seen, we've certainly seen a news report there is a lot of money laundering activity by paul manafort and we saw that last week we had paul manafort's realtor actually testify to the grand jury, so the talking point that, well this is a -- mueller with the indictment trying to
save his job and that he's been because he's costing us millions, we don't have a cost of how much the investigation is cost. so i don't think that talking point is based in reality at this point. the white house would love to see special counsel mueller dismissed. but it is up to attorney general rod rosen stein whether the charges can go through and he has clearly said yes. >> jack, really quickly, because i want to move on to another topic. but let's stay on the o.j. example. it is like saying there was another murder across the street. what do you say to that? why are they talking about hillary clinton now? it sounds like the campaign being relitigated once again. >> well i think it is legitimate. number one, there is no statute on the charges that may be coming against hillary clinton's campaign workers and by the way, evan, i have to say, i don't know of any evidence that you've seen about paul manafort in money laundering. this is an interesting accusations which i would ch challenge you on that. we have not seen any evidence.
the special prosecutor might delivered something but we have not delivered something like that and that is the kind of talk in washington, d.c. that people accept as truth when there -- there is not truth to it. so -- >> thankfully i don't live if washington and i spent six years in the federal court system. >> you might have -- and you might talk like that. but i think this prosecutor will go a lot of different places. as you know, he has four clinton donors on his team, they are highly motivated to get -- to get donald trump, they are not as motivated to go back and look at this bribery -- accusation which they rorpted when james comey and robert mueller were in the thick of if in 2010 but i think it would be good for the country if they looked at that. >> i have to disagree with jack here. because i think -- i see the strategy coming out. and he's saying they are clinton donors who want to go after donald trump more than hillary clinton. >> they are. >> and they are career law enforcement officials and the
integrity of the investigation. >> one of them gave $35,000. not -- that is not a -- i've never given $35,000 to anybody. >> are you questioning whether mueller could do this objectively. >> i really am. i think that this is one reason why he's putting this cart on the table. because congressman trent franks who is not a hard core partisan, he said it is time for him to resign based on the tie in with the briberyer scandal that he ignored with james comey several years ago. it is questionable if he could do this -- >> but he's gotten support from both sides. democrats and republicans when the name was floated for the position in the first place. >> and trey doughty who is a key player. said i have confidence in robert mueller and so i think that is significant. and i do -- >> okay -- >> and i go have a lot of faith. but i have to say that i believe trents franks will have to
something so say. >> we'll have to leave it there. thank you all for joining us. >> thank you. >> thank you. thousands of pages of the jfk asassination investigation have been released and still some classified. will they ever be released? this guy feels like he can take on anything. this guy isn't sure he can take it anymore. unwavering self-confidence. stuck in a 4-door sedan of sadness. upgrade your commute. ride with audible. dial star star audible on your smartphone to start listening today.
